Singapore is in a unique position where the best dive locations in the world surround her. In the next few years, as those places are becoming more and more developed, there will be an increasing demand for professionals who posses adequate skills and knowledge to either work in the inbound or outbound areas on this industry. Currently, there are plenty of courses which teach people how to dive. However, education with regards to running a dive operation or dealing with tourism and hospitality in the dive context is duly lacking. Because the skills needed in this industry are so unique, we created a program 4 years ago to address these needs. This is our best version yet. Introducing, the Dive Management Program.

The DMA Program is a 25 week program for divers and non-divers. It takes you from a non-diver all the way to a dive professional with all the skills you need to be successful in this industry.
